Nexus 6P vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: Vote best smartphone – Mobile Madness 2016

by Roy Choi | March 27, 2016March 27, 2016 3:00 pm PST

Vote today’s round of Mobile Madness. Today we have previous play-in round winners the Nexus 6P going up against the Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Nexus 6P is probably the first time most U.S. users have set their eyes on a Huawei device.  Then again, some may argue it is equally difficult to get an Xperia device here in the U.S. market as well, at least as far as sales distribution is concerned.

Vote below, and vote as often as you’d like. Have fun and be kind to each other.

What I find most impressive is how the Nexus 6P’s excellence feels so natural, like it isn’t trying too hard to be the best. It just is. Everything works in perfect harmony to create one of the most exciting devices in a long, long time… read more

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung introduced the Galaxy S7 Edge less than a month ago during  World Congress in Barcelona and, believe it or not, it’s already here. In fact, we’ve been testing one for the past week and we’re ready to present our full findings on the device.

The Galaxy S7 Edge is the successor to the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which launched just six months ago, which means it technically has bigger shoes to fill than the Galaxy S7, which is hitting the market about one year after the Galaxy S6…. read more
